My photo
A very warm welcome to my teeny, tiny part of the huge world of blogging. This is where I am hoping to share my passion for making hand made greeting cards. So - why "Always with a Heart"? Well this is for two reasons. Firstly, it is because every card I produce always carries a heart on it somewhere. This can be big and bold or small and almost hidden - the fun sometimes is just trying to find it! Secondly it is because I put my heart into everything I produce. I hope that any visitors enjoy seeing what I post. If you drop by then please leave me a comment so that I know you called. It would be nice to know that you have found my heart in what I do.

SUNDAY SNIPPETS AND THEN .. .. ..

Hi Everyone

I hope you are all having a good weekend and got to see some of that glorious sunshine yesterday.  I wonder if we will see any more today?  I hope so.

Sorry I didn't get as far as sharing anything yesterday .. .. I ran out of time :-(

As usual I was trying to fit far too much into one single day.  A shame really as my head was buzzing with ideas I wanted to put into play and I could have carried on for hours and hours.  Never mind .. .. the ideas will keep.  Better to have loads of ideas waiting in my head than none at all!!!

Flying by in a quick rush with my Sunday Snippet share as I am off to exhibit at a wedding fayre today.  All my lovely goodies are piled up by the door ready and it just remains for me to make myself look presentable.

So here is my snippet share for Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge (which I made in readiness on Friday).




As always on a Sunday I am super lazy and don't list my ingredients, but if you want to know anything then just ask away and I will try my best to answer

Sadly not many snippets met their doom in this little creation .. .. but every little helps.

Have a lovely day everyone.  Hopefully  I will get chance to catch up with a few blogs this evening .. .. energy permitting!!  But for now it is time to get ready to meet some "happy couples" planning their BIG DAY!!!!   Aaaaahhhhhh!!!!

Love
